When a guest informs you of a food allergy, he or she is looking to you for menu advice. This means you need to have a good understanding of all the dishes on your menu, including the exact ingredients of each dish. If you're unsure about what to offer, don't just recommend a random dish, instead check with the kitchen staff as someone will be able to help and recommend the perfect dish suitable for your guest.
